Welcome to the Ardmore Bald Eagle Nest

This thread is dedicated to observations, photos and videos of the eagles who inhabit a nest located in the Ardmore area of North Saanich on Vancouver Island BC.
The nest is located on private property.
By all accounts and observations this pair did not nest successfully in 2015.
We wish them better success in the coming season.

Here is the link to the 2014-2015 thread.

I did a tour of all the nests I monitor on the Saanich Peninsula today. I did not see any eagles around the nest area or at the beach but I'm sure I heard one calling somewhere in the distance. I checked all the trees along Ardmore Dr. but still did not see one. The nest is still intact Left thumb up

I saw an adult eagle this afternoon perched in a tree beside the Ardmore Golf Course clubhouse. I don't know for sure that it was one from the Ardmore nest but I have seen eagles perched there in the past. Couldn't get a good pic as the sun was low on the other side of the tree.

Had a lovely paddle on a beautiful day at Coles Bay adjacent to the Ardmore nest. Two bald eagles were sighted on the opposite side of the bay from the nest on separate occasions. There used to be a nest there, on Native reserve land, but we could not locate it yesterday. We did however find another nest in the Ardmore area.

I visited the nest area & the beach this afternoon. Both eagles were perched in different trees on the property at the end of the road. There is another nest on Ardmore close to the mailboxes by the golf course but I didn't stop to take a pic. The nest that I was told about quite a few years ago, which is on private property on the water side of Ardmore, is still there but hasn't been used for many years.

Sun was almost behind the tree Roll eyes

I visited the nest area yesterday and did not see or hear the eagles. The nest does not look like any new sticks have been added.

There is another nest a short way down the road and a fellow walking his dog said the eagles are using it. There were quite a few new sticks added to this nest although I did not see a white head in the nest.

An eagle was perched in a tree across from this nest.
